Pests act differently during different seasons, especially during the winter months. Some hibernate in their nests, in trees, or underground while others migrate to warmer clients. Others seek shelter in warm places, like your home, to escape the cold weather and survive the winter months.
While some common insects hibernate during the winter, others are still active, even if you don't see them. Termites can survive Georgia's winter weather temperatures and will make their homes in piles of wood you may be storing for your fireplace. Other insects like ants and spiders can hitch a ride on the plants you bring in on cold nights. Small beetles and ladybugs will come in through doors and other openings and will likely be found near light fixtures and windows where it is warmest. Make sure to keep wood piles away from your home and check plants for signs of infestation before bringing them inside.
Some of these pests, such as ants and termites, are colony insects. That means that if you find one, there are likely others in or around your house. If you suspect that either the inside or outside of your home is being invaded by bugs this winter, give Horne's Pest Control a call.
